I have been to the Adelaide on numerous occasions now, admittedly always on a Sunday.
This is another Shepherd's Neame pub, which for me is a slight shame, as that is not my favourite brewery. However, there is always a decent selection of hand pulled ales on, and a good wine list.
The menu (at least on a Sunday) is truly comprehensive - from the traditional Sunday roast through to mussels and soup and even sandwiches - even on a Sunday. I've only tried the mussels, but they were good (though not superb).
As used to be traditional in more places, this pub puts nibbles on the bar on a Sunday, including roast potatoes. Yum.
The pub is clean and pleasant, and attractively and traditionally decorated. There are benches, chairs and leather sofas, as well as bar seating. The garden too is well kept, though as is normal these days, full of smokers. It's not huge, so does get crowded in the summer.
I've found Dermot (the landlord) unfailingly charming. he always appears in shirt and tie, and greets everyone - he treats us like regulars, even though we visit maybe once every six weeks. I have heard that he can have a temper, but I've never witnessed it. He runs a tight ship, and won't tolerate bad behaviour or excessive swearing. This, to me, is a good thing.
All in all, an excellent pub, well suited to Teddington. You can find it near the station, though it does hide a little bit behind foliage. It is, in my opinion, worth seeking out, especially on a Sunday lunchtime.
A pub great for having a quick pint with your friends. Admittedly i havent spent long there but have had a few pints and have always had a a nice time. Great service and nice pints
